BRACEBRIDGE, Ont. — Muskoka Transport has made a decision to use in-cab scanning in an effort to improve productivity, the company has announced.


The carrier teamed up with Shaw Tracking to implement the program. Muskoka said in a release that in-cab scanning will allow its drivers to manage paperwork through a simple in-cab solution.


“Our team delivers loads throughout the US and drivers must routinely locate the nearest truck stop with faxing capabilities to send signed documents back to our office, utilizing valuable time and money in the process,” explained Kevin Chilvers, operations manager with Muskoka Transport. “In-cab scanning allows drivers to send scanned documents from inside the cab within a matter of minutes, eliminating the need to find, and pull off at truck stops.”


The company says it has already installed the scanners and trained its drivers on their operation. So far, driver buy-in has been positive, Chilvers said, adding the company will now be able to shorten its billing cycle.
